Many of the studio artists are highly experienced teachers, and provide individual, group and unique arts tuition. The mentoring program involves 13 Newcastle-based established artists volunteering their time to mentor an emerging artist for 12 months. The internship program provides valuable practical work experience for those interested in forging a career in the art world. Our trained art mediators are practiced in the process of beginning conversations about artworks; moving to discussion and finally to supporting an interpretation. This program will soon be explored as an online audience experience … making connections building relationships.
